Conceptual Schematic

THE THREE MOST SIGNIFICANT QUESTIONS THAT DEFINE YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM:
Using non-invasive ultrasound imaging technologies:
Can we identify vulnerable plaques, stratify vascular risk, and guide therapies?
Can we characterize engineered tissue constructs in situ such as vascular grafts and cardiac patches?
Can we identify bioactivities in vivo such as inflammatory responses?

FIVE KEYWORDS THAT DESCRIBE YOUR AREAS OF INTEREST:
ultrasound imaging; photoacoustics imaging; multi-modality imaging and therapy (theranostics); tissue elasticity; tissue composition

TECHNIQUES, MODELS, METHODS, ANALYTIC APPROACHES, ETC:

Ultrasound compressional elasticity imaging system and analysis software (Zebra fish heart to human heart)
Ultrasound shear wave elasticity imaging system and analysis software (small to large animals)
Ultrasound thermal strain imaging system and analysis software (small to large animals)
Photoacoustic (molecular) imaging system and analysis software (Microscopic system for cells and small animal scan system)
